Genting has owned the London members-only casino for ten years. According to The Times, the group is thought to have appointed CBRE, the property consultancy, to handle the operation.
The Times reported that the group could have decided to sale the casino because of its location, losing business and failing to keep pace with Genting’s Mayfair properties, the Palm Beach and the world famous Crockfords Club.
Maxims is based inside Palace Gate House, a grade II listed Victorian townhouse built for John Forster, the friend and biographer of Charles Dickens, in the 1860s.
News about the sale has turned the Maxims into the second second high-end casino to go on the market in as many months, following the sale of Les Ambassadeurs to Birmingham City owner.
